With the popularity of movies like “Hidden Figures,” it’s been quite a year for women in science, and on May 11, a local aerospace engineer was honored. Hosts Linda Gerstman, Captain Donna Beering and Dr. Carlissa Hughes recognized Northbrook native Beth Moses — Virgin Galactic’s chief astronaut instructor — at the Women’s Board of the Adler Planetarium’s 15th annual luncheon at The Drake Hotel (140 E. Walton). After the event, 250 female students sat down with Moses for a Q&A at the Adler Planetarium (1300 S. Lake Shore), where they later participated in STEM workshops.
